#BAMagic Waves: British Airways Surprises Young Aviators


British Airways stepped in to give two young aviation fans an early Christmas gift. The airline partnered with charity, Rays of Sunshine, to give the deserving youngsters a VIP tour of its state-of-the-art engineering and flight training facilities at London Heathrow. Harvey McCulloch, a 16-year-old who is autistic and battling Hodgkin lymphoma, wrote to British Airways to say he dreamt of sitting in the flight deck of an A380 Super Jumbo aircraft. Harvey was invited to British Airways’ state-of-the-art simulator hall and was joined by 12-year-old young carer, Sammy Austen-Jones. Sammy, whose mother suffers from life-threatening epilepsy, also wrote to the airline to say he dreams of becoming cabin crew.

Both youngsters took to the controls of an Airbus A320, sat in the flight deck of the A380 Super Jumbo and the B747 Jumbo Jet and learnt how to deliver a cabin safety demonstration. See how they got to engineering and flight training facilities at London Heathrow here. The visit comes as part of the #BAMagic100 campaign, which sees the airline’s commitment to ‘100 Acts of Kindness’ in its centenary year. Since its launch in 2017, the campaign has seen the airline arranging surprise proposals, reuniting families, arranging money-can’t-buy experiences and creating holidays of a lifetime.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Good location astounding but the staffs are rude and they make me wait so long for the service. They charge me more than what is on the website and did not refund me the manager is not helping with the issue

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
